Hi, I'm new to Font Creator - a refugee from FontLab Studio (although still using it on Mac). I'm intrigued about Font Creator's apparent default Glyph Names protocol. I imported a TTF font generated from Mac FontLab Studio into Font Creator 11 Professional in order to check some OpenType code which doesn't compute in FontLab. I've always been pretty strict about glyph names, always using either the user-friendly names that are in the famous/infamous Adobe Glyph List for New Fonts (AGLFN) or, if no AGLFN name exists, then I use the uniXXXX format. However after my font was imported into Font Creator, many of my uniXXXX names have been converted to non-AGLFN names eg uni1E0C has become "Ddotbelow". Where can I change the default for the way Font Creator writes over imported glyph names???? Apart from changing glyph names to ones NOT recommended by Adobe this change renders my code-testing scripts useless because they are all built using the AGLFN/uniXXXX name format. In the Preview window I can't even override the Font Creator-assigned glyph name by using the actual Unicode value in the format \1E0C - Font Creator simply doesn't respond to the changed name in this format. Please tell me how I can regain control over my glyph names in Font Creator. Thanks in advance. Kevin.
